the stage and repeated, portions of it. >> romney stood on the debate stage, i haven't seen those ads, i wasn't involved in making them, i don't know anything about them. gosh, g. >> but the fact is asked the question at all. the candidates can say i don't know anything about this forever. >> and fear are also clear cases where candidates have come out against ads done by super pacs on their behalf. that happened also in the primaries. so there is a burden. i agree with you there is a burden on the candidate to publicly disavow things or -- said in their support, because they do have a direct affect. i agree with that. >> not to go off on a tangent but when people worry about whether campaigns are getting more negative i always like to cite the accusation against jefferson, which was made that he was a hideous hermaphroditic will character possessing neither the strength of a man nor the gentleness of a woman. this was something that was made in an official opposition newspaper at the time. this is not to say that it would be nice if our campaigns were nice, but pretty hideous sme

further commonwealth, and it's also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate. i'd like to ask you about the 47% that we heard about this week. governor romney, in some remarks that were taped at a fundraiser earlier this year, talked about how there's 47% of the country that does not pay federal income tax. he said that they believe they are victims who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. governor kaine, there's over a million virginians who fall into the category of not paying a federal income tax, part of that 47%. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think more generally about whether too many virginians, too many americans by extension are too dependent on government for basic needs in their lifesome. kaine: david, i heard those statements, and i -- you can say something off the cuff that you regret, but i really deeply disagree with the sentiment expressed by governor romney. i don't meet virginians who think they're victi

assist to the public. what it says is that mitt romney you see on a stage in a debate or the national convention or in a tv ad is saying one thing but the mitt romney behind closed doors when things there's no press is saying something entirely different. >> it depends on the day. sometimes mitt romney says one thing and -- the 47%, the important point improves your point, which is there haven't been, they did an add on 47% thing, but you've seen small media in terms of amount of dollars spent, the amount of voters nationwide to know about this because of the earned media coverage in a presidential race, it's remarkable. they did a whole bunch of surveys that tested whether people had heard about the 47% in the swing states. the numbers were astronomically high. that's the thing. and i do think that the comment was emblematic of what people had already built in in the feelings it any uncertainty it was mitt romney isn't like me. he doesn't get me, he doesn't get the middle-class. and that one comment encapsulated it all. >> he was talking like a political strategist and not as a presi

the romney campaign is manging. do you think that's correct that they're making mistakes? >> i disagree, as you might imagine. with immigration, for example, there was a fascinating moment during a republican partial debate late last year during which you had candidates all agree enthusiastically that we need immigration reform, and wolf blitzer kept asking them, what about the border fence? literal hi, they were having this little conversation amongst themselves, and it was completely ignored because, gosh, that doesn't sound like a border fence to we and, of course, mitt romney gave a speech oriented around facilitating family unification. so this is treated as an utterly marginal issue, yet you have more skilled immigration than you do less skilled, and also you have more representation from asia than you do from latin america. that doesn't necessarily mean any kind of sea change, and certainly mitt romney's not faring terribly well with asian-american voters. it is also true that the asian debate is framed by some of us, so i think that's important to keep in mind particula
